not so good Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

Ok, so firefox refused to start with my current profile anymore and I had this regularly created FEBE backup. Just restore the profile and good to go, right?

Hell, no.

After restoring profile I had my extensions and some of them even had their settings. eg. stylish and foxyproxy seem to be working. However

- session lost
- firefox preferences lost
- FEBE settings lost - yeah, soo awesome
- TMP preferences lost
- personas lost
- password hasher settings lost

Next time I will use tar for backups :s

And no, the profile was not corrupted at the time of backup.

The backup does not even contain session data so it obviously cannot be restored, corrupted or not.

A FEBE restore is only as good as its backup. If you backup a corrupted profile, the restored one will still be corrupted.

Using tar will result in the same thing.

Hi Chuck,

I wanted to publicly say THANKS to you and your awesome coding of the Firefox Environment Backup Extension.

I have been messing around with Xmarks for years and got fed-up with their server accessibility funk, etc., etc.

I recently bought a Synology NAS and tried to use Xmarks and WebDav to serve locally my bookmarks and add-on backups. Well, I spent several hours of frustration flailing around in Synology’s WebDav and shared folders to no avail.

I knew there was something out there that did what I (we) needed: A basic backup of add-ons and bookmarks. – That is when I can across FEBE.

I have 6+ machines on my personal LAN and 4 of those I need to keep backed up with the same FF bookmarks and extensions.

FEBE is awesome, the features and options are exactly what I and what many others needed – oh… and the report, are you kidding me? That thing is crazy detailed, it gives the names, authors, size and date with an awesome mouse-over.

An html link to my NAS drive with all my bookmarks and extensions – VERY nice.

YOU are a miracle worker Chuck! – Paypal sent!

Happy Thanksgiving.

Well, I suppose backup was a breeze. But I wouldn't know, because actually using the backup to restore settings is next to impossible. The directions for a restore are very unclear.

Restore doesn't work on Mac Puntuado con 4 de 5 estrellas

It's pretty good at backing up, but restore doesn't work on Mac on FF version 24.0.
Verified with an empty FF profile.

Apart from this, it's not bad.

What better than to have all your needed xpi's backed up, and to box.com too.

Great add-on! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

I was able to use FEBE 7.3.0.1 to do a complete profile backup from Pale Moon 24.0.1, which was restored to Firefox 24.0 AND Pale Moon x64 24.0.1 with no problems at all. Flawless experience, and will be my preferred method of backup/restore over the standalone MozBackup (which hasn't been updated in a while).

Unfortunately, A Waste of Time Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox 23, so I installed and ran a backup. It backed up my extensions OK. but when I try to restore them nothing happens. I have 59 backed up extensions (It apparently backs up even the disabled ones), so I tried several times just restoring one. Not even an error message, no indication it even executed. Very disappointed, because it would have been a real time saver. Too bad I can't give it a 0 star rating.

An error must be occurring

This is not the proper place to offer technical support. An error is most certainly occurring, but you need to look in the error console. Please leave a post in my support forum (http://www.customsoftwareconsult.com/forum/index.php) and I will help you resolve the problem.

Don't use Puntuado con 1 de 5 estrellas

FF23
Don't use.
At least importing of permissions failed for cookie whitelist. And other complaints. No work around. Needs a serious work.

One of the most usefun Addons Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

It saves my time. I do regular backups monthly. Sometimes occasional backups when I change somethings a lot in Firefox. It saved a lot of trouble and time when everything gone in a mess in Firefox or when I reinstall windows. Lots of options creates flexibility.

SEVERAL BUGS! Puntuado con 5 de 5 estrellas

When I did a first backup (Full profile) (FEBE, Perform backup), it dit it (previously I had selected various options for the backup). So the first backup had a particular size (126 MB for mine). Then, a few seconds after the first backup, I did a new second backup and the size of it is completely different (6 MB)!!!! Basically, the addon does not seem to have saved fully the second backup!!! There is something very wrong with your addon!
BUT...
What I noticed later on is that the second backed up over time. In other words, I did the full backup the second time but it was not done right away, it showed the page indicating that the backup had been done but it was not yet done fully!! And that is where the problem, the BUG is. Sometimes, it does the full backup later on BUT sometimes it does NOT!!

I do have around 90 tabs opened and quite a few addons but I also have a quad core Intel processor and 8 GB of RAM!! So, there should not be any problems doing the backup.

More, all the plugins (Tools, Addons, Plugins tab at the left) are not part of the full profile. In my test, only one plugin was backed up but I have more than 10 plugins listed that were not backed up.

In summary:
1) a great addon but it must be 100% reliable when you do a backup (full profile or else).
2) More, I believe the full list of plugins should also be backed up if it is possible (not sure on this matter if it is possible with your addon to accomplish this second point).

Many thanks to the developer for this addon.

Backups are asynchronous by default

Backups are run in the background by default. Because of this, you may get the Backup Results Report before the backup is actually completed. You can change this behavior by un-checking "Run asynchronously" in FEBE options > How to backup.

Seems useless Puntuado con 2 de 5 estrellas

Seems rather overcomplicated for what it is - most people want either just a bookmark backup or *everything* backed up, with as little puzzling out as possible. Profile backup may work..it creates *something*. Profile restore, however, does nothing at all even though it says it completes successfully. Again, its very vague and I'm not even sure which profile FF is using or how to switch between them. It does look like a fairly professional addon despite is vagueness and fundamental failure to actually do its job.

FEBE saved my arse! Another add-on messed up Firefox. Uninstalling that add-on did not fix it. Had to uninstall Firefox and use the option to remove all bookmarks, add-ons and settings. Without FEBE it would have taken a hours to install all the add-ons and bookmark all my favorites again.

Thank you FEBE!
